In 2017 founded the Museum of Volcanoes “Vulcanarium” which differs from many volcano museums all over the world. Its exposition doesn’t concentrate on danger and hazards caused by volcanoes. The main idea of the museum is to show the important role which volcanoes play in the ecosystem of the Earth: volcanic process created the most of the lithosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere. Many different aspects of volcanology – geology, geophysics, mineralogy, petrology, chemistry, mechanics etc. are presented in popular and accessible form.
At present – head of the Museum of Volcanoes “Vulcanarium”, associate professor at Kamchatka State Technical University.
